As Sheriff, I created effective programs that contributed revenues to the Sheriff’s Office, improving bottom line performance. The Motorcycle Traffic Unit expanded our footprint and provided an additional resource to generate revenue. The Aggressive Criminal Enforcement (ACE) Unit provided resources to secure outstanding criminal warrants, intercept street crime activities, and secure criminal intelligence information to expedite cases.
As Sheriff, I instituted Zero based budgeting for Fiscal Years 2012, 2013, and 2014, accounting for every dollar in every line item. As a result, each year, the Sheriff’s Department exceeded revenues and came in under budget. FY2013 was a record year, returning over $435,000 in taxpayer monies.
